It’s the anniversary of this blog. One year ago today, I started writing this blog because we had just started TTC, and a lot of powerful emotions began to surface. Fast forward to one year later. A lot has happened in a year. In just one year of writing this blog, I’ve lost one baby, I had one 132 day cycle, my husband was transferred, and I had to leave my job and the only place in Japan I ever wanted to call home, I was diagnosed with infertility and PCOS, I lost two family members, and I was separated from my husband for over two months just to name a few. I thought things would have turned out differently. (Don’t we always think that?) I thought we’d still be living in our old city, and I’d still be surrounded by people I love and care about. I thought I’d still be working at my old office. Most of all I thought for sure I’d at least be PG by this time. I suppose John Lennon summed it up best when he said, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” I got a hearty dose of life this past year. Am I happier now than I was a year ago? The short answer is probably not. Life has become more challenging, and sometimes I feel like I’m not up to the challenge.
I decided some changes are in order here (as in this blog). First of all, I’ll be changing the name of this blog. I feel like the current title is misleading since I don’t always talk about babies, but more so this blog has evolved. Secondly, I’m going to update the About section. Finally, I plan on writing at least one new post with about my history so people can get caught up easily. (Though not necessarily in that order.) I’ll be rolling all this out next week (amid job interviews). Thanks for sticking around and please stay tuned!
